I'm afraid "Swiffer" is the only brand I've heard of in the UK! However I
will see if I can find "Amazing Wipes" somewhere. Of course that fact that
they have the same name is no guarantee that the UK version (if it exists)
has quite the same properties as the Aussie type. Companies often vary their
products to suit local preferences.
